Look, I hate this line of thinking myself BUT if we are to develop into Super Bowl contenders we need to amputate our rotten limbs. Ron will never comprehend how to manage an offense and special teams, and never grow a spine.
The Marlins were smart to sign him for 13 years. His contract is very flexible after six seasons, and it's backloaded so they can build around him. Staton might be the first prospect/star in a long, long time that we haven't sold for a ton of dough. Keep in mind, at one point, we had Cabrera.
Giancarlo may never live up to his contract but as long as he's hitting 30+ homers and making crazy plays in the outfield I don't think any Miami fan will care. He's putting asses in the seats.
